Good afternoon all.
I hope you enjoyed the Zoom call today for those who could join us. Hopefully, we can do this again soon – I may aim Zoom’s at groups (Year 1 or 2) to try and make learning a little more targeted. I will let you know via parent-mail or email about this.
Phonics: We haven’t physically done a Phonics lesson for a while now, so don’t worry if you are a little rusty! I’m going to recap over Phase 3 (we were all pretty comfortable with Phase 2 and most of Phase 3 before leaving for Christmas).
Please find the Phase mats below and use them for when we are doing any Phonics or writing activities. You will not find a Phase 4 sound mat. The main aim of Phase 4 is to consolidate the children’s knowledge and to help them learn to read and spell words which have adjacent consonants, such as trap, string and milk.
Phase 4 tricky words are:
Please find games on Phonics Play (blogged yesterday about the new FREE log in you can use) or please use this link for Phonics; Letters and Sounds. http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/phase-3-games.html
English: Please complete the quick write activity found below.
Maths: From your knowledge of shapes (and our conversation/game on Zoom this morning), go around your house looking for 3D shapes.
Year 1: Draw the shape, write it’s name and some examples of what they might be (drawn and/or labelled). For example:
Year 2: I would like you to do something similar. Go around the house and find 3D objects, make a note of what 3D shapes you have found and exactly how many. After, you will need to make a bar graph. Please find a downloadable template for a shape bar graph. Options: one filled in with shapes and name and the other is completely blank. Or if you would like to design your own, please see examples below:
Have a great day of learning everyone!
Mrs Archer and Mr Fox.
